I was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, East Africa and migrated to the United States at age 11. I was raised in the suburbs of Washington D.C. and Maryland, and moved to New Jersey in the 1990s.
My childhood experiences as a young immigrant adapting to a new country, a new language and different family dynamics has made me an empathetic and compassionate attorney. I became a lawyer to guide clients successfully through the legal system as I have experience as a lawyer and a former child immigrant who has dealt with the immigration system and family courts. I am passionate and tenacious about representing my clients to the best of my ability.

Prior to attending law school, I volunteered as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for Hudson County CASA, in Jersey City, New Jersey. After law school, I clerked for the New Jersey Judiciary, Family Part (Children in Court), in Woodbury, New Jersey.
Prior to starting my solo practice, I worked as an Associate Attorney with the firm of Malik & Popiel, P.C. in Nanuet, New York. I worked with employers who wanted to bring H-1B specialty occupation professionals to the U.S. I also counseled clients on employment-based nonimmigrant matters.
